WAS D-B product...

There was an article on Mercedes typewriters in The Star within the last year or effort to keep the factory and workers occupied during the 1920's auto sales slump. Made bikes also, I believe.

I saw this Mercedes Typewriter, on a German Military Artifacts Site.
I went to the site from a post on this site.
Fascinating if you are history buff.
Thought it would be interesting;

Who cares? I'm sure at that vintage, the vacuum system is shot! I bet the shift key is either too firm, or too mushy.
